Collection: 50s Wigs

The 50’s were a time of relative prosperity as many families had newly disposable incomes for the first time compared to living through the hardships and rationing of World War II. This fact, alongside a big increase in the consumption of mass media, meant people were more influenced to buy hair products and try new things to change their hair. Women wore hairstyles inspired by Hollywood film stars such as Sophia Loren, Marilyn Monroe and Audrey Hepburn. It wasn’t just women though, it also paved the way for the groups of Greasers, Rockabilly’s and Teddy Boys who decided they wanted start doing their own thing as well! This collection of wigs has been designed to reflect some of the most popular and recognisable looks from the era and will save you a tonne of time and effort when used to complete your fifties inspired costume!
